Clash of masculinities or backdoor complicity? The socio-therapeutic work against violence and for relapse prevention.

The work of the Men’s Counseling Center Graz/Upper Styria with male youths and men who have been using violence or are still violent, is done ambulantly in a multidisciplinary department comprising social work (case management), psychology (clearing), and psychotherapy. In 2007 this work was extended to prison. The round table wants to highlight the expectations and models of masculinity in the interaction between workers, clients and institutions that are negotiated and established:

  • Are the Connells concepts of hegemony (power), complicity, and subordination also established in the social interaction between workers and (forensic) clients?
  • Which differences or similarities between masculinities are necessary in order to foster the social-therapeutic process?
